How to Maintain Turkish Rugs?
Collectors of vintage Turkish rugs and kilims understand that proper care and regular upkeep
preserves and even
appreciates the value of their investment. While wool rugs do an incredible job at hiding dirt,
these pieces will
over time undergo wear and as such accumulate abrasive dirt that if left to fester can damage the
rug’s fibers and
foundation. This type of damage cannot be undone and as more and more dirt penetrate the fibers it
leads to a loss
of color and vibrancy making the rug appear rather dull. Rather than wait till your rug looks dirty
to bring it in
for a clean, we recommend you incorporate a few at-home care practices that will help extend the
life and sheen of
your rug. Regular vacuuming of your Turkish area rug will help to eliminate dirt and particles.
Firstly, be sure to
turn the beater bar off as the aggressive motorized brush can break the surface fibers of your rug.
sideways across the width of the rug and across the direction of the pile. At all costs avoid
vacuuming over the
fringe as rotating brushes will quickly tear the fringe. If your rug has a thin foundation with a
pile, we recommend
using an upholstery attachment and vacuuming in the direction of the pile only. Don’t be aggressive
and apply too
much pressure. The goal is to keep the buildup of dust and grit to a minimum. In general, you want
to vacuum the top
of your rug every 1 to 2 weeks depending on the traffic they are getting and their location in your
other month, vacuum the backside of the rug as this will help to keep moth and bug activity down.
